God, come to my help. Lord, quickly give me assistance.
You are the one who helps me and sets me free: Lord, do not be long in coming.
(Ps 69)


Lord Jesus, we come to you this day asking for your help.
We are in need of your guidance as we try to live faithful lives in loving service to you.
May we always turn to you when we are in need of direction and may we always proclaim your word in our lives.
Amen.

Lord, be true to your covenant,
forget not the life of your poor ones for ever.
Rise up, O God, and defend your cause;
do not ignore the shouts of your enemies.
(Ps 73)


Almighty and ever-living God, touch our hearts.
Fill us with your Spirit so that we may know your true will for us.
May we read the signs in our lives that will bring us closer to you.
Amen.

God our protector, keep us in mind; always give strength to your people.
For if we can be with you even one day, it is better than a thousand without you.
(Ps 83)



God our Father,
may our love for you know no boundaries and may our love for you
tear down the walls of prejudice that sometimes can
keep us from being truly loving persons with all whom we encounter each day.
May our love for you grow as we keep our focus on you.
Amen.

Let hearts rejoice who search for the Lord.
Seek the Lord and his strength, seek always the face of the Lord.
(Ps 104)



Lord Jesus, when you were on this earth, you gave us many examples to show your forgiving presence in our lives.
By this example may we come to know you in the sacrament of reconciliation and participate in the many opportunities to receive your grace.
Amen.

Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest, says the Lord.
(Matt 11)


Lord Jesus, your words are consoling to us who have heavy burdens to carry in life.
Sometimes our burdens are related to the work place, in our families and in our relationships with those around us.
As we carry our burdens, may we place them in your hands and ask you to help us ease the pain in our lives.
Amen.

I call to you all day long, have mercy on me, O Lord.
You are good and forgiving, full of love for all who call to you.
(Ps 85)



Lord God of power and might,
nothing is good which is against your will,
and all is of value which comes from your hand.
Fill our hearts with love for you.
Increase our faith,
and by your constant care protect the good you have given us.
Amen.

Lord, you are just, and the judgments you make are right.
Show mercy when you judge me, your servant.
(Ps 118)


Lord our God, you redeem us and make us your children in Christ.
Open our eyes to the wonders this life sets before us,
that we may serve you free from fear and learn to call you God our Father.
Amen.

Lord God, this day we find ourselves rejoicing with the men and women who have gone before us as witnesses to the faith.
Their witness to the faith gives us encouragement to walk our journey of faith in trust, humility and love.
Help us, Lord, to remain faithful to your teachings and your ways and never let us stray from your path.
Amen.

God, who raised Jesus from the dead,
will give new life to our own mortal bodies through his Spirit living in us.
(Romans 8)


Lord, this earthly life is a passage into eternal life.
May we, who walk this passage in life, grow in strength and courage to remain faithful to your ways and your teachings when you walked this same earthly life.
Help us to trust in your unconditional love for us so that some day may we enjoy the vision of your glory for ever.
Amen

The Lord will not abandon his people.
(Ps 94)


God, our creator,
we have those moments in life where we sometimes feel like you have abandoned us.
Yet, we know you are with us always, until the end of time.
Help us to value the gifts that are all around us,
to share the fruits of your presence with those we meet
and to share the wonders of your creation with our brothers and sisters.
Amen.

Teach me your paths, my God, and lead me in your truth.
(Ps 25)


Loving and gentle God, you show us the path of life.
May your light always guide our feet as we walk the path that you reveal for us to take in this journey in life. Sometimes this path is easy and other times it is difficult.
We ask for the grace to remain faithful to walking this path and when we need help to be humble enough to ask for your help.
Amen.

May these moments of prayer bring us to a deep level of gratitude for your presence in our lives.
Amen.

Come, you whom my father has blessed, says the Lord; I was ill and you comforted me.
I tell you, anything you did for one of my brothers, you did for me.
(Mt.25)


Lord Jesus, your teachings and examples of the beatitudes give us great encouragement to reach out to those in need.
May we hear the cries of those who are in pain, hurting and feeling so alone.
We ask for your grace to be attentive to their cries and to respond in service to their needs.
Amen.

The Lord says; my plans for you are peace and not disaster;
when you call to me, I will listen to you,
and I will bring you back to the place from which I exiled you.
(Jeremiah 29)


Lord, you are the source of all that is good.
In our lives, there are moments when we fall from the road that brings us to you.
In these moments, there are times that our darkness and fear can appear to overwhelm us.
May your saving grace bring us back on the road that leads to you and may we grow stronger in our trust of your presence and care of us in our journey in life.
Amen

A Veterans Prayer

Thank you for the brave men and women who serve and have served in the military.
Even now, guard them and give them compassion for those who confront them as enemies.
Keep our children from hate that hardens, or from scorekeeping with human lives.
Though for a season they and we must be people of war, let us all live for peace, as eager for agreement as for victory.
Encourage them as they encourage one another, and never let hard duty, in or out of the service, separate them from loyalty to your Son, our Savior.
Amen.

If you, O Lord, laid bare our guilt, who could endure it?
But you are forgiving, God of Israel.
(Ps. 129)


Lord, be attentive to those who call upon you this day.
In our humanness our hearts can at times be like stone.
In these moments, help us to rely on your forgiveness and mercy,
give us the grace of conversion to change our hardness of hearts into gentle loving beings.
Amen.

Our Savior Jesus Christ has done away with death and brought us life through his gospel.
(2Tim 1)


Lord Jesus, we all have trials and difficult moments in life that we must face.
Amid these times, help us to remain faithful to your presence in our lives.
Help us to spread your loving presence to those who seem to think there is no hope.
Help us to reveal that there is hope and that they are never alone, for you are with us always.
Amen.
